Implementing the Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client

Implementing the Microsoft Dynamics GP Web ClientMicrosoft Dynamics GP is a popular enterprise resource planning (ERP) application used by tens of thousands of sites around the world to keep the accounting, financial, distribution and manufacturing functions running day in and day out.

To do this Microsoft Dynamics GP was accessed via client software installed directly on the user’s computer, or a terminal server. Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 saw the introduction of a second type of client with which Microsoft Dynamics GP could be accessed; the web client. The installation of the web client is a little more complex than that of the classic desktop client.

This book provides guidance for the implementation of the Microsoft Dynamics GP web client with step-by-step guides, illustrations and links to useful resources.

Who This Book Is For

A basic knowledge of Microsoft Dynamics GP is also required.
